Child Custody Investigations

 We understand how much your children mean to you. There is nothing more important than securing their safety and ensuring they receive the financial support, proper care and loving attention they deserve. Using a very experienced child custody investigator can make all the difference.  

If you suspect your child is a victim of abuse or neglect, there is no time to wait. You need convincing evidence to mobilize law enforcement to intervene expeditiously on your child’s behalf. Every moment of abuse can feel like a lifetime and a lifetime is how long it can take to heal if allowed to continue.

Child Custody Investigations and Visitation

Nothing could be more devastating than the thought of losing your child in a custody battle. Ideally, children would be blessed with two loving parents who provide safe, healthy, loving and stable homes, but this is not always the case. Under these circumstances, the child or children should remain in the custody of the more qualified parent.

If the parents are unable to reach an agreement as to whom that is, the court will decide custody matters based on what is in the “best Interest” of the child. However, with divorce proceedings on the rise, millions of children are trapped in legal battles the court system is ill-equipped to handle. As a result, children are being subjected to visitation or habitation with unfit parents at an equally alarming rate.

Child Custody Visitation Investigations are undertaken to determine if the “Other” Parent is treating your child properly, ensuring their safety and protecting them from improper or dangerous environments or situations. In other words, are they fit and qualified for custody or visitation? 

There are many factors the court will consider when making custodial decisions, they include:

  • Stability, health, lifestyle and schedules
  • Criminal Records and/or activity
  • Evidence of child abuse or neglect
  • Unfounded accusations of abuse or neglect by one parent about the other
  • History or complaints of violence against a parent
  • Evidence of Alcohol or drug abuse
  • Parenting skills
  • Means to provide food, shelter, and education for the child
  • Home environment
  • Morality of the parents
  • Emotional and physical health
  • Parents willingness to support the child’s relationship with the other parent
  • Abduction or abandonment of the child or other defiance of legal process
  • Care and affection shown to the child
  • Parents past and current conduct
  • Acceptability of parents associates
